American Islamic College, along with other sponsors, hosted speakers with unique perspectives into the life of M. Cherif Bassiouni. The presentations offered an insight into his life as a scholar and activist, alongside with legacy of his work. David Scheffer from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Mansa Bilal Mark King, Professor of Sociology from Morehouse College, and Louise Cainkar, Professor of Sociology and Social Justice from Marquette University gave presentations.
